It is an animated exploration of the carousel. The machinists introduce the universe of the Marine Worlds from the seabeds to the surface of the sea and set some levels in motion. Visitors can’t have access to the levels, nor to the elements.
Located on the banks of the Loire River, the Marine Worlds Carousel is subject to bad weather, as all fairground merry-go-rounds. The timetable for opening depends on weather conditions. In case of heavy rains or of winds blowing up to 28 mph, the Carousel is closed.
Apart from thunderstorms or sudden precipitations with strong winds, the decisions to close in the morning or in the afternoon or for two hours will be anticipated depending on weather forecast and on how the situation develops.
